I'm sure someone will correct me but has no-one managed to invent a decent modern dynamo system for
bikes, what with all this hybrid technology you'd think it would be possible.


Have a look at Busch & Muller: http://www.bumm.de/produkte.html

You can use a dynamo to charge your USB stuff, phones, batteries etc. when not using the lights.

Great light/torch/flasher. Take AAA (buy them by the ton in Poundland).

I found the flashing mode on those to be much dimmer than the contant mode.


Came today. Very impressive with new batteries in. Will test it out on the bike later. Seems fairly well constructed especially at that price.
